STUDENT GOVERNMENT ESTEE BECK Alligator Writer Gainesville says goodbye to yet another big-name business as its last Albertsons plans to close its doors for good later this year. After 35 years, the grocery store on 2323 NW 13th St. plans to close around Oct. 8, said Christine Wilcox, spokeswoman for Albertsons LLC. to liquidation sales, which are scheduled to begin around Aug. 31. counts wasnt available, but customers can said. Wilcox said she didnt know exactly when struggling, but there is a way to track such decline so they can make improvements. Marketing or promotional strategies are sometimes revamped, but those strategies dont always work. When we determine that a store isnt it around, Wilcox said. Sometimes were successful and sometimes were not, and when were not, we have to make tough decisions. Final Albertsons grocery store in Gainesville to be closed PATIENTS RECEIVE EKG TESTS AND ARE SEEN BY A PHYSICIAN. ERIN JESTER Alligator Writer Researchers have found a new, more effective way of testing patients who come to the emergency room with chest pain. The new method will be used in the Chest Pain Emergency Room that opened at Shands on Wednesday. Usually, when a patient arrives at the ER with chest pain, he or she is screened for immediate health risks, such as a heart attack, said Dr. Preeti Jois, a clinical assistant professor of ER medicine and medical director of the Chest Pain ER. If the patient is determined to have low to moderate risk of a heart attack, a doctor prescribes an outpatient stress test, and it is the patients responsibility to return to the hospital for more tests. Before, the problem was that only about one in three patients who were prescribed a stress test were returning, said Dr. David Winchester, an assistant professor of cardiovascular medicine and director of cardiovascular services for the Chest Pain ER. Now, if a patient comes to the Shands ER complaining of chest pain, he or she will receive an EKG test within 10 minutes and will then be evaluated by a physician. If the patient does not have a high risk of heart attack, he or she will be moved to the Chest Pain ER. Chest Pain ER opens at Shands EMILY MORROW Alligator WriterThirsty students need no longer carry cash on campus. A project to add credit, debit and Gator 1 Card readers to 200 vending machines on campus began Monday. In addition to the added convenience, students using their Gator 1 vending accounts at the machines will receive a 12-percent discount. We know that every little bit helps, especially when youre a student, said Kristine Hinck, spokeswoman for PepsiCo. UF Business Services and Student Government worked with PepsiCo to implement these changes. Under the universitys agreement with PepsiCo, UF sells only Pepsi products on campus. this vending machine conversion, but Pepsi hopes to expand the service to other universities. If the card readers are successful in this trial run, Student Body President Ben Meyers said they will be installed on every vending machine on campus. I think, in general, everyones moving toward a cashless society, he said, so I think it will be very well-received and very widely used.

4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 Daniel Phillips / AlligatorMembers of the Florida Young Naturists train for the clothing-optional 5K on Saturday. The 5K will be held at Sunsport Gardens in Loxahatchee, Fla., near West Palm Beach. Registration is $20 for students. MELINDA CARSTENSENAlligator Staff Writer When computer science and engineering senior Bryan Dubno was a freshman, he felt overwhelmed by UFs large campus. Thats why when he wanted to create an iPhone app in October 2009, he decided to make one for freshmen seeking the same UF resources he was. Those resources included a UF map, a UF-related event calendar, news and a directory of professors. Since then, more than 14,000 people have downloaded the free app, called UFmobile, Dubno said. Last Thursday, Dubno released an updated version of UFmobile, introducing a class schedule importer, a Facebookwall-like feature and augmented reality, which allows users to aim their devices cameras at buildings to identify them. About 5,000 users updated the original app, and about 1,200 new users downloaded the new version, he said. Fifth-year mechanical engineering major Victor McCor mack downloaded the original and new versions, but he said Its everything I need for being a UF student in one app, McCormack said. UFmobile can be downloaded on the iPhone, iPad and iTouch. For more information, visit www.nomtasticapps. com.Student creates iPhone app to help navigate on campus THE NATURIST EVENT WILL BE HELD SATURDAY NEAR WEST PALM BEACH. ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterWant to run a 5K and get a perfect tan at the same time? Florida will be held at Sunsport Gardens Natur ist Resort in Loxahatchee on Saturday. The event will be hosted by Aqua Sun, an event company started earlier this year by Santa Fe College student Daniel Phillips, 25. He said he expects 65 to 80 runners. There will be a pre-race registration party at Run and Roll in West Palm Beach on Thursday evening. The party and the race are both open to the public. The registration fees are $20 for students, $25 for the public before Thursdays registration party, and $30 the day of the race. Participants can register online at aquasunevents.com. Aqua Sun will donate a portion of the proceeds from the 5K to Vita Nuda and Florida Young Naturists, two Florida naturist groups. Phillips, a naturist, said he started Aqua Sun because he wanted to organize some runs and volleyball games, and its easier to get attention for those events with a company name. We want to let people know that there are naturists out there who arent old and crippled, he said. Were young and we do fun activities. Not only can you not knock it till you try it, but its an experience that will pretty much change your perception of a lot of things, Phillips said. Itll make you never want to wear a swimsuit ever again. Marion Paige, a UF philosophy and religion junior, is a member of Florida Young Naturists Gators club with Phillips on campus. However, the club cant get going without a faculty adviser. Paige said she has participated in numerous Florida Young Naturists and Vita Nuda events. Its more about not having to hide anything about yourself, Paige said. You see everybody for who they are. Theyre all equally vulnerable and equally open. Runners to get naked for 5K Its everything I need for being a UF student in one app. Victor McCormackmechanical engineering majorTECHNOLOGY

Gainesville Police are still looking for the person who sloshed the sculpture with yellow paint earlier this week. ADMISSION IS FREE. ESTEE BECKAlligator WriterMusicians, storytellers and belly dancers will take Florida Museum of Natural History visitors on a journey through sounds and music from around the world Friday. Celebration of Sound begins at 6 p.m. at the museum, located on campus at Hull Road and Southwest 34th Street. All community members are welcome, and event admission is free. The event complements one of the museums exhibits called Wild Music: Sounds and Songs of Life, which opened in May and runs until Jan. 2. Tickets ranging from $5.50 to $8 to the Wild Music exhibit will be available at the event. The whole museum will be open, and those who purchase exhibit tickets receive complimentary entry to the open that night. The exhibit guides visitors to consciously experience sounds heard in natural and human environments, like rainforests or cities, and then educates culture around the world. It illustrates that sound and music are all around us, said Leeann Bright, marketing and public relations coordinator at the museum. Jazz trio Deezy Pete will perform at Celebration of Sound, along with Native American storyteller Sarah Eiland and the Ethnic Dance Expressions Per formance Ensemble. Event guests will have the opportunity to join the dance ensemble in a belly-dancing tutorial and will also get to make their own maracas, Bright said. Tiffany Ireland, the events coordinator and the museums education assistant, said its exciting to have such a variety of dance and music perfor mances in one event. ebration of Sound and the Wild Music exhibit, Ireland said, is that it offers an experience for all ages. Its one of the few exhibits where truly any age will have fun, Ireland said. You will learn something, but you might not realize it.Museum celebrates world music BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Contributing WriterMoney earned from selling an unwanted textbook can But textbook-swapping websites allow students to exchange textbooks from past classes for ones they actually need. Buying textbooks sucks, said Jonathan Simkin, founder of www.swoopthat.com. You either go to the bookstore and you pay more, or you look for hours online. Simkins website shows a textbooks sale price and that books price on Amazon and chegg.com. Students can also see what other students in the area have spent on the same book. Because we integrate directly with course schedules, we know what you need, he said. Simkin said it typically takes 10 minutes to buy all the books needed for a semester. Another textbook-swapping website, www.bookmooch. com, could appeal to students who prefer browsing from an international pool of textbooks. can be viewed in seven different languages. It can really save you money when you are trying to make a book collection, said Teresa Malango, who works in media relations for the website. Nevertheless, some students still seek the meat-and-potatoes version of buying books: going to the bookstore. Environmental science senior Stephanie Kurtz said she has never bought a textbook online. I know its cheaper [buying textbooks online], Kurtz said. I just like the convenience of being able to go into the bookstore and get everything I need. She said she fears that if she orders a textbook online then drops the class she will be stuck with having to pay for it that is, if she gets the textbook at all. Kurtz said some of her friends have ordered textbooks online and were sent the wrong ones or never even received them at all. when she goes shopping for textbooks. I buy what I can online, she said, but I buy the rest in the bookstore.Textbook-swapping sites offer alternatives to buying new books Some are integrated directly with course schedulesON CAMPUS CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterThe UF RecSports staff is hosting an event to promote student involvement from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at the Southwest Recreation Center. Staff will offer demonstrations of boot ing classes. Intramural sports competitions, club expositions, chair massages and Lake Wauburg activities will also be showcased. Event organizers expect at least 2,000 students to attend the RecSports Extravaganza, according to marketing coordinator Jessica Gates. The same number of students attended last year. The event is good for new students who want to get involved and learn what RecSports has to offer, said Doug Burkhart, graduate assistant for intramural sports. He said Extravaganza will be more of a social event than an athletic competition.

Jonathan Simkinswoopthat.com Founder CAITLIN HARTLEYAlligator Contributing WriterStudents, new and old, should not just be focused on when and where their classes are, but more along the lines of how they will be getting there, said Dekova T. Batey, the Bicycle/Pedestrian Program Coordinator for City of Gainesville Public Works. Batey said the program is like a clearing house for bicycle and walking safety awareness. The program puts on commu nity events to teach bicycle and pedestrian safety and promotes bicycling in the community. On campus, its an isolated situation where youre more prone to ride a bicycle and get around in a very convenient manner. New students need to be aware of walking and bicycle safety because those are main modes of transportation on a campus, Batey said. Batey said drivers and cyclists believe they know safety regulations. He said not all realize all the rules of sharing the road. Mike Heneks, 18, a freshman majoring in accounting at UF, said he knows all there is to know about bicycling safety. You have the same rights as cars. You have to obey speed limits and stop signs, Heneks said. Correct. But he is forgetting another huge factor when it comes to sharing the road. There is a lot of singular focus, Batey said. A lot of the time you have people that are driving automobiles, and they dont really consider other people who are not in that same mode. Caitlin McDaniel, a 19-yearold electrical engineering major at UF, said shes experienced with bicycling to her classes. She had a little advice for new freshman cyclists: Be really careful and avoid biking around a lot of people. Ive seen it go very bad for all people involved. Make sure you know where youre supposed to be biking, especially at intersections, she said. She admits, though, that she does not follow all safety guidelines. When Im off campus, I always do, but on campus, Im pretty bad about wearing a helmet, she said. McDaniel is not the only to not wear helmets. Heneks was on the same page, saying that when he rode a bike he rarely wore one, either. Even though several students at UF do not wear helmets while biking, according to Batey, they are not breaking any rules. In Florida, the law is that if to wear a helmet, so its optional for those who are 16 and above, he said. Batey and the Bicycle/Pedes trian Program still recommends helmets, no matter what age. Now we have a lot of distracted driving. People are using cellphones and all types of electronic devices while theyre driving, and that distraction may cause those thinking theyre behaving safely to still be hit.

Bring a helmet. This lesson was unfortunately learned by Erin Joynt, 33, of Wichita, Kan., when a patrol truck ran over her head while she was sunbathing on Daytona Beach. Yes, thats right. Her head. Was she wearing a beige swim suit while laying on a beige towel? She wasnt buried in the sand with her head sticking out just enough to breathe. According to reports, this poor woman was minding her own business, catching some rays, when a beach patrol pickup truck ran over her head while making a U-turn. The driver of the truck, a 21-year-old lifeguard, said he particular watchman of beachgoers had a spotless record. This makes the rest of this story all the more unusual. This is not some freak accident that only happens once every 10 years. Sunbathers have been run over by patrol vehicles three times in the last year. This is the sixth incident since 2003. Signs in the area should read: Beware of undertow, jelThe driver of the vehicle might have had a spotless record, but it begs the question whether or not this is some game played by local lifeguards.

A license proving you can save people from drowning is required, but a drivers license must be optional. will consider proposals to ban large vehicles from driving on the beach due to visibility problems. It is ironic when the supposed protectors of our safety end up causing us more harm than protection. So much for being a lifeguard. The lifeguards in these patrol vehicles of death obviously did not mean to harm anyone. However, the county should really reconsider beach policies concerning vehicles on the beach. Maybe they can designate certain No Sunbathing areas or at least signs reading: Warning: Patrol Vehicles Drive Past This Point. Luckily, Joynt is alive and in stable condition. Marine submerses himself in war cultureMy nephew sleeps in what we yoga doers call the corpse pose. He is on his back, legs straight out and hands folded to the center of his chest. As a kid, he slept in all kinds of weird positions. But during a recent visit with him in Miami, I noticed that he has drastically changed his sleeping habits. We went swimming for about an hour the other day, and I asked him how things are going. He responded with a series of stories that I sort of understood but were full of so many military acronyms I didnt bother to ask for front line in Afghanistan. As a corporal in the U.S. Marines, he is also an ammunition specialist with extensive training operating the M777 howitzer. He has notebooks lying all around his mothers home. a grocery list on or set by the phone for messages. He tells me he uses about four of them a day on the job. He writes ammo info and coordinates and other mystery letters and numbers in them. He has an 8-year-old daughter who was born when he was 18. He is now 26 and trying to do right by her. He recently had her name legally changed to his last name. That way, he can make her his benefactor just in case. In the pool, he was telling me of plans to get housing on his base at Camp Lejeune, N.C. That way, his daughter, Cadence, can spend summers with him. During the rest of the year, she lives with her grandparents in Ohio, Monday through Friday, and then with her mom on weekends. She sees her dad once or twice a year. My nephew tells me there is a tattoo tradition among message upon capture or death. Some bodies have The undesirable doing the unimaginable for the ungrateful, running across their chests. Another favorite is Death Before Dishonor. My nephew was excited to share his latest tattoo with me, which he claims will outshine any of those his fellow Marines have. Its so unique that his tattoo artist had to look up what one looks like on the Internet to sketch its likeliness. There is a string leading from his big toe that attaches to a 4-by-2-inch tag that bears NAME: DJ SCHAEFFER and then has empty lines running from TIME:, DATE EX: and a message AT TACH TO TOE. The DATE EX:________ means date expired, as in the date he might die. It seems a little extreme, but I guess that his how Marines live. He tells me, I have seen some things, Aunt he looks down, breaking eye contact. Its like he cant put what he witnesses into words. He did tell me his buddy just lost a foot and how weird it is to see an empty seat or bed in the barracks that someone was actually sleeping in the day before. Then he proclaims that he would like to serve in Afghanistan at least three more times, because upon the fourth hell be known as a Senior Salt Dog. That doesnt something he strives for to up the competition in the bar racks. I hugged my nephew goodbye and noticed he had bulked up in his spare time in the desert with 5-inch-high biceps. wasnt sure if or when I would see him again. Each year he serves he becomes embedded deeper and deeper into the culture and language of war and Marine life. I can only hope he remains safe and anchored, retainthings he has seen.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorMeatless Mondays benefit communitiesIn response to your Tuesday column Meatless Mondays Are Vital for Creating a Healthier Campus, I would like to compliment Jared Misner for his incredible work toward bettering this planet for all the creatures on it. Misners and the Gator Dining Services efforts are paying off, and with Meatless Mondays now at UF and sweeping college campuses across the country, thousands of students are being introduced to a greener way of eating through vegetarian cuisine. A recent study by Aramark, a leading food service provider, concluded that one in four college students seek out vegan options when they sit down to eat. UF is now in the unique position to lead the way for schools nationwide by continuing to expand their Meatless Mondays program and removing meat from campus menus. United Nations scientists have deter mined that raising chickens, pigs and other animals for slaughter generates about 40 percent more greenhouse gasses than all the cars, SUVs, trucks and planes in the world combined. cover that chickens have their beaks cut off when theyre only days old, that male piglets are castrated, and that cows are branded and de-horned all without any painkillers. and dismembered while still conscious as upon cats or dogs, it would result in felony animal cruelty charges. Yet these practices are standard in an industry that refuses to make even the most basic improvements in the way animals are treated. Luckily, not only is going vegetarian the single greatest action that you can take for animals and the environment, its also the best choice that you can make for your health. With UF actively promoting vegetarian and vegan foods, cutting out the cruelty on campus has never been easier! For more information, visit peta2.com to request a free vegetarian/vegan starter kit.

I honestly dont know, I moan. The night continued, and I became more and more stressed. impossible. The words in front of my eyes began swimming into each other, forming blobs of lines, not even resembling shadows of their old forms. I shook my head and found myself on Facebook. I noticed that I was missing a nice get-together with friends I hadnt seen in several months. And thats when it hit me. What am I doing? Im staying at home, memorizing French verb conjugations and ignoring my friends. This is all on the second day of school. Does this sound normal to you? Yeah, it didnt sound normal to me either. Im writing this because in high school, I was always that one over-achieving student who annoyed everyone else in the class (to tell you the truth, I annoyed myself as well). UF, I noticed myself falling into the same pattern all school and no play. realized how much I was missing. The few friends I made were talking about shows, events and campus groups theyd gone to. I had nothing to share. I remember a friend of mine last year telling me how she went to an 8:30 a.m. exam so hungover that the room was consistently spinning. She used the story as a cautionary tale; I viewed it with awe and wonder as I had never done anything so remotely daring. I was wasting my college years. With this in mind, I began making a conscious effort to break out of my studious comfort zone. I started attending groups that I liked and started actually going out at night instead of holding myself in. In short, I broke free from my study chains. College is the precursor to real life, and its the only chance to truly explore the facets of your personality and interests. Its the one time in life where youre allowed to follow a whim and not feel the heavy consequences of being spontaneous. Its the one time in life where you can stay up till 5 a.m. because you dont have to wake up until 2 p.m. for a class. and explore your school and enjoy the Gainesville sunshine (or the frequent rain weve experienced). I dont recommend going out and getting drunk every single night, especially when you have an 8:30 a.m. exam the next day. However, realize that life isnt so serious, because arent through nothing? Have an excellent semester. Michela Martinazzi is a sophomore art history major at UF.Students should enjoy life and explore surroundings in collegeGuest columnMichela MartinazziSpeaking Out

The store is one of three Albertsons in Florida scheduled to close, including one in Mount Dora and one in Tampa. Two Texas locations will also close. Three more in the Lone Star State will be sold to H-E-B, a private, Texas-based supermarket. Albertsons closed its other Gainesville location in 2008, selling it to Publix. Albertsons LLC, formed in 2006, bought 660 surviving stores from Albertsons Inc. The remaining of the 2,400 properties were sold to SuperValu and CVS. The number of Albertsons nationwide will be cut to 209 this year. The stores 88 employees were informed of the closing Friday. Wilcox acknowledged this is a sensitive time for unemployment. The most important task right now is to communicate with our associates, Wilcox said. She said options like severance packages and store transfers will be available to eligible employees who want to continue working with the company after the store closes. The nearest Albertsons is in the Orlando area. UF student Josh Weinberg, an 18-year-old biology major, was visiting the 13th Street location for the second time since his move to Gainesville. He doesnt consider himself an Albertsons regular but liked its proximity to campus. He said he wasnt aware of the closing. The news doesnt come as a sur prise, though. He speculated the growth of superstores was to blame for Albertsons decline. Certainly the Walmart right there isnt helpful, said Weinberg, gesturing to the superstore in the neighboring shopping center. Hes not sure where hell do his grocery shopping once the store closes. Maybe Sams Club, he said, which is just up the street at 2801 NW 13th St. Other grocery stores in the area include family-owned Wards Supermarket on 515 NW 23rd Ave., Save-A-Lot on 2605 NW 13th St., and a Publix a little further north at 3720 NW 13th St. Devout customer Donna Scott, 45, of Gainesville, found out about the closing from an Albertsons employee on a recent shopping trip. Scott said she did all her shopping at Albertsons when she lived in the Broward County area. When she moved to Gainesville nearly 12 years ago, the 13th Street Albertsons was her staple. She wont go anywhere else for her shrimp and her steaks, because nobody else, she says, has prices like Albertsons. Scott said it seemed like the store as a shock. I hate that theyre closing, Scott said. Theyre going to be greatly missed. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 Alex Catalano / AlligatorAlbertsons, located at 2323 NW 13th St., has announced it is closing.

This is really a very unique unit in the Gainesville area that provides highly focused, dedicated care, she said. The new method of assessing patients detects heart problems in about 28 percent of people tested, up from 2 percent with the old method of testing, Winchester said. When potential problems are spotted early using technology such as CT scans, he said, patients are more likely to return for treatment.

THE TRIP AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE INSPIRED THEM. MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterTwelve years after moving to Florida, UF senior Bertrhude Albert crossed country lines once again to return to her home Haiti. It wasnt the same country she remembered as a young child. A month before, on January 12, 2010, Haiti had been rocked by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake. It never struck me what was going on in my country until I went back, Albert said. When I returned, I knew that my future was going to be Haiti. Her father, Isaac, has run an or phanage in Haiti called the H.O.P.E. Center for a decade, but his daughter was also inspired by the trip to offer her own help to the people of her home country. Being face-to-face with this poverty It was engraved in my heart from that point on, Albert said. Albert helped organize a mission trip to Haiti for 19 UF students dur ing spring break. From January 13 to March 1, the group raised more than $23,000 for the trip and other projects, Albert said. Albert and her roommate, masters student Priscilla Zelaya, decidProjects for Haiti Inc. after returning to Florida. When we came back, without a doubt, we had to do something, Zelaya said. Theres so much hope in Haiti. The Christian-based organization supports projects to aid people in Haiti, such as the children at Alberts fathers orphanage. in July. The organization supports an English Association program that provides education materials for 16 Haitians who meet once a week to practice their English-speaking abilities together. The organization also tutors people who cant speak any English once a week to give back to their community. I hope that after this year, their dously and their community grows tremendously, Albert said. She sees Projects for Haiti as a call for young people, Christians and Haitians to help the struggling people of Haiti. Our country needs us, she said of herself and other Haitian people in the U.S. Lets step up and make a difference. Amanda DiLorenzo, who went on the spring break to Haiti in March, said she was amazed by the level of poverty many of the people she met dealt with every day. While she was in Haiti, she met a young girl who came in for medical treatment. The girl had a hernia the size of a toy football on her stomach. When you go to hug her, she would scream (from the pain), DiLorenzo said. They gave her pain medication, but once that ran out, DiLorenzo knew she would be back where she started wanting to be hugged but pained by physical contact. My heart was breaking, she said. DiLorenzo, a UF sophomore and treasurer of Projects for Haiti, was inspired by her experiences to take a course in Creole. Joshua Horton, a 26-year-old UF graduate student in computer engineering, also went on the spring break trip and was amazed by how kind and hard-working the kids at the orphanage were. You realize you dont need to have all the stuff that we do in or der to be happy, he said. When I left the orphanage, I didnt want to leave the kids. I need to go back. Rokeshia Ashley, a 20-year-old UF junior, is a McNair scholar like Albert. She, Albert and another McNair scholar visited Haiti in August. Ashley wanted to visit Haiti after living in the Little Haiti section of Miami. She wanted to see how the cultures of those two places compared to each other. I mean, aside from the bugs and aside from the heat and humidity, I loved it, she said of her trip to Haiti. I felt welcome there. The three students taught English to Haitians during their visit. Fluency in English is a valuable asset in Haiti that can help people get hired for a variety of jobs, Albert said. The kids wanted to learn English, Ashley said. They want an education, and its not readily accessible for them. Albert will graduate this year, but Projects for Haiti will continue with her at the helm. She hopes to eventually earn a Ph.D. in Latin American studies with an emphasis on Haiti. Then she could teach at the college level and continue to visit Haiti a few times each year and run I just want to empower Haitians to go out and make a living, to cope with the hand that theyve been dealt, she said. When she was younger, Albert dreamed of making a high salary. Now she wont give up on the tiny Caribbean country. My conscience wont let me; my heart wont let me; my body wont let me, she said. Ill spend my last THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 9Courtesy to the AlligatorMcNair Scholars Jasmine Wright and Bertrhude Albert pose with orphans at the H.O.P.E. Center in Haiti. NATIONAL ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON There was a crack in the Washington Monument, and capstones were broken at the National Cathedral. In the District of Columbia suburbs, some people stayed in shelters because of structural concerns at their apartment buildings. A day after the East Coasts strongest earthquake in 67 years, inspectors assessed the damage and found that most problems were minor. But the shaking raised questions about whether this part of the country, with its older architecture and inexperience with seismic activity, is prepared for a truly powerful quake. The 5.8 magnitude quake felt from Georgia north to Canada prompted swift inspections of many structures Wednesday, including bridges and nuclear plants. An accurate damage estimate could take weeks, if not longer. And many people will not be covered by insurance. In a small Virginia city near the epicenter, the entire downtown business district was closed. School was canceled for two weeks to give engineers time to check out cracks in several buildings. At the 555-foot Washington Monument, crews found a 4-inch crack late Tuesday in the monuments top. The damage was discovered during a visual inspection by helicopter and cannot be seen from the ground. The monument, by far the tallest structure in the nations damaged by a natural disaster, including earthquakes in Virginia in 1897 and New York in 1944, said Bill Line, a National Park Service spokesman. Tourists arrived at the monument Wednesday morning that surround its base. Walkways were blocked by metal barriers manned by security guards. Is it really closed? a man asked the clerk at the sites bookstore. Its really closed, said the clerk, Erin Nolan. Advance tickets were available for purchase, but she cautioned against buying them because its not clear when the monument will open. This is pretty much all Im going to be doing today, Nolan said. Tuesdays quake was centered about 40 miles northwest of Richmond, 90 miles south of Washington and 3.7 miles underground. In the nearby town of Mineral, Va., Michael Leman knew his Main Street Plumbing & Electrical Supply business would need at best serious and expensive repairs. At worst, it could be condemned. The faade had become detached from the rest of the building, and daylight was visible through a 4to 6-inch gap that opened between the front wall and ceiling. Ive got peoples jobs to look out for. Leman said he is insured, but some property owners might not be so lucky. The Insurance Information Institute said earthquakes are not covered under standard U.S. homeowners or business insurance policies, although supplemental coverage is usually available. The institute says coverage for other damage that may from burst gas or water pipes, is provided by standard homeowners and business insurance policies in most states. Cars and other vehicles with comprehensive insurance would also be protected. Level Orange, the second-most serious category on its fourlevel scale. Earthquakes in that range lead to estimated losses between $100 million and $1 billion. In Culpeper, Va., about 35 miles from the epicenter, walls had buckled at the old sanctuary at St. Stephens Episcopal Church, which was constructed in 1821 and drew worshippers including Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and J.E.B. Stuart. Heavy stone ornaments atop a pillar at the gate were shaken to the ground. A chimney from the old Culpeper Baptist Church built in 1894 also tumbled down. At the Washington National Cathedral, spokesman Richard Weinberg said the buildings overall structure remains sound and damage was limited to decorative elements. Massive stones atop three of the four spires on the buildings central tower broke off, crashing onto the roof. At least one of the spires is teetering badly, and cracks have Repairs were expected to cost millions of dollars an expense not covered by insurance. Michael Leman

Questions or comments about our new vibe? Email us at abanko@alligator.org. Twit Pick@danecook: I have a date with one of my stalkers goes with blood. See page 14 for a debate of the sexes on the sticky situation of juggling relationships. Is it wrong? DIANA LOPEZ Avenue Contributing WriterAfter spitting continuous, freestyle rap for a record-shattering nine hours, 18 minutes and 22 seconds in April, it became clear that Chiddy Bang was a force not to be reckoned with. The electro hip-hop duo, formed by Chidera Chiddy Anamege, 19, and Noah Xaphoon Jones Beresin, 19, made waves on the music scene last year with their popular single, Opposite of Adults, and earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest freestyle and continuous rap. Tonight, the duo will take their talents to the Florida Theatre of Gainesville in the Never Growing Up Tour, presented by Party Degree, beginning at 8 p.m. Anamege and Beresin are shaping a new musical frontier where the lines of hip-hop, indie and electronic music are integrating in astounding ways. Opening the door for further experimentation, the two just released a mixtape titled Peanut Butter and Swelly that is available for free online. The youth-orientated feel of the duo stems from the Philly-based pairs experiences and personalities, said Anamege, who comes from a Nigerian family. Growing up in Newark, N.J., Anamege said the city was his heart. Thats where I learned it all, he said. You know, my style, where I learned to do my thing and spontaneously rap spur-ofthe-moment-type shit and come up with rhymes. Anamege then went to boarding school in Massachusetts where he was eventually high school in Pennsylvania and soon after attended Drexel University in Philadelphia, where the fateful meeting between the duo that morphed Chiddy Bang would take place. Chiddy Bang has remained faithful to the college scene, coming to Gainesville fresh off a concert at UCF in Orlando on Wednesday. I especially love doing shows for college kids, Anamege said. You guys know whats up. Tickets for tonights event are on sale online at chiddybanggainesville.eventbrite. com/VIP. Early-bird tickets are $20 and tickets for a Meet and Greet at midnight are on sale for $15. The Avenues Diana Lopez picked up the phone to chat with Chiddy uncensored. What have you been up to so far? Ive been doing a lot of traveling, coming back from the UK. Im in West Virginia right now getting ready to play this show. How did coming to Gainesville come about? I noticed its not listed with the ofyour fans in Gainesville? It wasnt on the schedule, but it made sense to go. Its really cool because weve never done a show in Gainesville or in Or lando, and its something that Im looking forward to doing. Why is your latest mixtape out for free? We started off just giving out free muselves in. Nowadays, instead of putting stuff out and charging people for it, me and Noah, we always thought it was the best thing ever to give out free music to our fans. Give out stuff that we think is a certain quality, stuff thats dope. Cause thats the way we build a fan base. Thats the way we interact. Thats our gift to them. We havent people keep asking us when are we going to drop that record, cause were working on on it. In the meantime, were going to give you guys a free mixtape, something to give to the fans to keep them engaged and keep them busy and give us something to hold Congratulations on breaking the world record for longest freestyle! Tell me about it. It was really MTV that reached out to us to do it. My manager said, MTV is doing this new online music awards show, and they want to have a piece of the show going around you trying to break the world record for longest freestyle. Do you think you can do it? And I was like, well, I mean, Id never freestyled for more than an hour at that time, and I didnt really know how it was going to go, but I knew that I could freestyle, and I said, Well you know, Ill take a crack at it. MTV had all these contingency plans because it was a livestream, and they were like, What happens if he doesnt do it, like gets to four hours and messes up? Like what are we going to do? They didnt know if I could pull it off. As luck would have it, I was able to just coast right through it and make it happen. It was amazing. I started at 11:30 (a.m.) and went on until like 9 p.m. incredible. At the end of it, Ill tell you what, though: I was exhausted. (Chiddy chuckles.) Its a little-known fact that I actually hold two of them: longest freestyle and the longest continued. So that was amazing. You were talking about how you can just keep going when you rap, but if theres ever a time when its 2 a.m., youre stuck in the studio and things arent working out, what do you do to get going again? It really depends. When youre in the studio, you want to be wide awake, you dont want to be tired, you want to be well -rested. I have a long, long rest before I go in the studio so I can just go on for hours and hours and hours. But really its just us: me, Noah and a couple of our people just in the studio chilling, smoking blunts, just vibing. Two a.m. here, everyones exhausted me in the corner smoking a blunt, just zoning out. Thats sort of like how we do it. Whats your favorite thing about tour ing so far? I think my favorite thing about touring is just being in a different place every day. It blows my mind that yesterday I was in the UK. I was playing a music festival with Eminem and Rihanna and all these crazy people, and it was like one of the dopest festivals Ive been part of. It was called V Fest. You know, I had a great time doing that, and today Im in West Virginia playing a show with Big Sean, Mac Miller and Courtesy to the Alligator / EMI RecordsChiddy Bang gained a mainstream following in 2010 with the single Opposite of Adults, which is set to a sample of MGMTs Kids.Chiddy Bang brings the Never Growing Up Tour to Gainesville SEE CHIDDY, P A GE 13The show kicks off tonight at 8 p.m. at the Florida Theatre I especially love doing shows for college kids.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 11In 1974, Rolling Stone magazines Jon Landau reviewed an up-andcoming musicians gig for Bostons the Real Paper. The emerging songster was Bruce Springsteen of who Landau penned, I saw rock 'n' rolls future, and its name is Bruce Springsteen. Landaus quote packs weight, and more than 35 years later, its time to dust it off. Brian Fallon is best known as the front man of modern rock n roll pioneers, The Gaslight Anthem. His latest project, an endeavor with friend and guitarist Ian Perkins, goes by the name of The Horrible Crowes. Dubbed by Fallon as his nighttime music project, The Hor rible Crowes debut full-length, Elsie, is a stark contrast to Gaslights revved-up style. Creating a darker, moodier setting and making even better use of his phenomenal vocal abilities, Fallon has crafted what is undoubtedly the most fantastic record of 2011 thus far. His soul is unparalleled in todays watered-down inlike the emotional, crescendo-ing Go Tell Everybody and the wild Mary Ann. Elsie is a slow number that precedes the most Gaslight-esque song hold the Hurricane. The albums standout comes in Black Betty & the Moon, as Fallons lyr icism and storytelling reach new heights, comple menting the rock-solid musicianship from he and Perkins. Elsie will not go down as Brian Fallons best album. It'll be topped by future Gaslight Anthem releases. But what Elsie shows us, above anything else, is that Brian Fallon is one of the best songwriters on the planet. Unmatched poetry and subtle yet awe-inspiring musicianship characterize every corner of Elsie, giving the record a personality and swagger that we haven't seen from a release this year. While it might be a weighty column of the semester, Im just going to say it. Im going all in with Brian Fallon. He has my vote for life. I will listen to whatever music he writes. Fallon is the best chance that rock n roll has to remain relevant on a notable scale. I have heard rock 'n' rolls future. Its name is Brian Fallon. ff the Record Thomas NassiffColumnistTwitter: @T homasNassi ff Band: The Horrible Crowes Album: Elsie Release Date: Sept. 6 Label: Side One Dummy Records Sounds Like: Nighttime music borrowing from Bruce Springsteens Darkness On the Edge of Town and earlier rock n roll and soul staples. Choice Cuts: Behold the Hurricane, Black Betty & the Moon AMY STUARTAvenue Contributing WriterThe steamy, summer heat is in full force as were rounding out the hottest month of the year, and it's important to know how to stay safe when sweating it out under the sun. While working out can be relaxing, the heat Gainesville packs can be quite dangerous. but if you enjoy an outside run, beware. Hydration should be your No. 1 goal. RichFoods and the 2009 Mr. Gainesville Bodybuilding Champion, suggests drinking a gallon of water a day if you want to work out in the sun. Coconut water is also an option because it replenishes your electrolytes. Keeping your body stocked up on amino acids, proteins and even some multivitamins is ideal. You'll also need to gauge how long you'll be outdoors. According to Alexander, no one should be in the sun for more than an hour. The dangers of getting heat stroke are higher around noon, so exercising in the morning or late afternoon is ideal. Some choose to work out at that time because they like their body heat to rise, Alexander said, But its safer to stick with the cool mornings. Holly Beard, a member of UFs crew and drill team, said she is more aware of the risk factors involved with working out in high temperatures because often people dont know they are experiencing heat exhaustion. If your body is low stress, which then leads to heat exhaustion. After this, you could experience heat stroke. down. If you are out in the sun, however, and you feel as if you are about to experience heat stroke, dont sit down. Keep walking until you under a shady tree.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 13 3 Doors Down. You cover so much distance, and you get to touch the people. Its always a fun time. You bring a lot of youthful energy to the rap scene, especially with the Never Growing Up tour that youre on. Where did that theme come from? I think it just comes from our personality. We went to college our freshman year; it was full of a bunch of kids that a lot of the time were stressed out and studying. It was full of kids who had their heads crammed in their textbooks, studying for midterms how to just have fun. Us, we kind of just had a good time. ever did, in, like, college basements. It would just be us and whoever wanted to come down to a frat house or a basement and wig out. We would just have fun; there was always a youthful energy to it. Just think about the kids who are really uptight and strictly focused on the textbook stuff. They dont grasp the essence of college, like meeting people and experiencing new things. When I met Noah, I was like, this is a new experience. He listens to a different type of music. We were in different crews and I embraced that new experience. How did your parents take it when you told them that you were dropping out and going on tour? They initially opposed it because they were like, What are you doing? And theyre all about academics, and theyre Nigerian and they want you to be like a doctor or a lawyer and all that stuff. But once they saw that I wasnt just fing my life away, and once they saw that there were some positive returns with what was happening, they were progressing forward. They were like, All right, I can deal with it. Its not so bad. Now theyre like the proudest parents ever. In the end, it worked out. If you were an item in a kitchen, what would that item be? Id be like a butter knife. Like Im not going to cut you, like, hard. If you piss me off, Im not going to come at you. Im a little smooth with it, but at the same time, dont fk with me. (Chiddy chuckles.) You cant really do any damage with a butter knife, but just having the duality of cutting something, but not hurting you. Is there a certain food that you absolutely cannot live without? I like to eat like steak, you know what Im saying? Im a big steak fan. A good dinner with a good steak medium rare is just like heaven. With mashed potatoes on the side and gravy. In another interview, you said that if a guest ever visited your home, you would give them a drink that wasnt very good. Could you elaborate on that? Oh shit, yeah yeah yeah its not a drink; youre probably talking about the Kola nut. Yeah, its like really, really bitter. Its an African tradition, so whenever someone comes to the house, you offer (him or her) a Kola, which is this nut which is really ... its not ... you know, an acquired taste. (Chiddy laughs.) Its not like, Hey, let me try this out and its going to be the best thing ever. But thats not the point its about the culture, partaking in it and experiencing it. Do you feel like some of your Nigerian roots are in your music? Xaphoon, he sampled some on some of our ear lier material. But I dont know, I think the Nigerian roots, youll get that across if you meet me. I dont think I present that in my music because I grew up here, in America. This is what I really know, but at the same time, if you meet me, youll be surprised with how aware I am of the culture and how aware I am of what goes on over there. Im actually going over there on Oct. 15. I always go; I go every year. My parents came back from Nigeria, like, yesterday. They travel there often, and I always go to get in touch with my family.The duo is paving new paths in modern music, blending genres CHIDDY, from page 10Courtesy to the Alligator / EMI RecordsAnamege and Beresins latest single, Mind Your Manners, has more than 500,000 hits on YouTube.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15A brand-spankin new school year has debuted on college campuses across the country, bringing with it high expectations, football season debauchery and a fresh start for all the new and returning students. Each year students evolve, adapting to their new class status. Some suddenly stop caring about school, some reach the high of being able to legally booze, but all will most likely make some epically bad decisions (even you, fresh meat). Every class is different in its own special way, and your friendly fellas here at the Avenue have tried to decode the pecking order, uncover ing the evolution of a young buck freshman to a geezer senior.FreshmanDressed to impress, the freshmen will arrive to class early and sit in the front row of Exceptional People after being inspired to do so by the peppy Preview staff. They found their way to Carleton via their campus maps and are sporting the ever-so-stylish or ange and blue lanyards around their necks. At night, they can be spotted leaving the bars when you arrive or vomiting after the three drinks they pregamed with in a Broward triple.SophomoreSophomores are so incredibly happy theyre not freshmen anymore that wisdom with any freshman who will listen, and if ever they are heart failure. At any given moment they can tell you how many days theyve got until their 21st birthday, and they can be seen getting their fake IDs taken away at Gator City.JuniorThese new upperclassmen have come to the horrible realization that college is going to be over in less than two years, and theyre going to have to enter the real world. They can be seen toting MCAT and LSAT prep books everywhere they go. And since theyve just turned 21, theyre super eager to show every employee at the bar their IDs, even if no one asks for it (um, you ordered a water).SeniorThey look perpetually hungover and exhausted. They are so over school but so ready to drink. After class (if they even go to class), theyll walk straight over to Balls and spend the day there. Day-drinking anyone? Shelby WebbColumnist

TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writer Coach Will Muschamp ended practice about 30 minutes early Wednesday night, but it was far from a reward. Frustrated with his players inability to remember assignments, Muschamp said the coaching staff would be evaluatstarters could be losing their jobs. There aint no doubt, Muschamp well look at the tape. Were gonna get the guys who compete and want to play hard. Florida did situational work Wednesday, meaning players were told to prethird downs or plays inside the red zone. Muschamp said most of the players did pretty well remembering their assignments, but clearly the problems of a few made the biggest impact on practice. Its just a lack of focus on what youre supposed to do and how youre supposed to do it, he said. Were in (a two-minute drill); we have guys walking around. We have no sense of urgency about what we do and how we do it and how we approach it. Very frustrating. Muschamp didnt say Wednesdays practice was a step back but added, It dang sure wasnt a step forward. This comes just four days after the Gators broke training camp. Following two weeks of staying together in a hotel and focusing on football all day, Florida players have returned to the typical dayto-day routine of mixing practice with classes. Muschamp doesnt think the new schedule affected practice. If youre a competitor and you want to line up in that stadium and play hard and play fast and play physical, you do it regardless of the situation, regardless of the opponent, he said. It doesnt matter; you just line up and play. Injuries: Wide receiver Omarius Hines missed practice with a hamstring Courtesy of UF CommunicationsFlorida coach Will Muschamp said several starters may lose their jobs after he cut Wednesdays scrimmage short because players were not focused. UF FOOTBALLFrustrated Muschamp cuts practice short MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writer Offensive lineman Kyle Koehne may not be a household name for Florida fans. But the sophomore is a well-known commodity among his brothers in the trenches. Koehne, who was moved from tackle to left guard recently, has emerged as the likely starter when Florida opens the season next Saturday against FAU. Since the move, teammates and coaches have raved about Koehnes work in practice, and while that may come as a surprise to some, its nowhere near a shock to Koehnes roommates: center Jonotthan Harrison and right guard Jon Halapio. Hes had a few plays where hes killing guys, Halapio said. He just really knows what you can clearly see that on Although Koehne rose from relative obscurity to the top of the depth chart in a matter of weeks, he said the adjustment has not been a big issue for him. After rotating with the reserves on the right side at guard and tackle last season, Koehne said hes comfortable at any spot along the line, adding valuable depth at every position should someone go down with an injury. Also helping his learning curve is the relationship Koehne shares with Halapio and Har rison. After lining up next to each other snap after same house, the same couch, and continue to Koehne in mix to start after switch to guardWith practices closed off to the media and the public and limited bits of actual information coming from anyone associated with the Gators reporters, fans and outside observers alike have had to take coach Will Muschamp and his players at their word. So I have, and that includes redshirt senior quarterback John Brantley during fall camp. as the Gators starting quarterback, Brantley was frank. Youre always nervous in games, thats just the way you are, he said. It was arguably the most honest answer to a question during the opening weeks of practice. If youre taking the Gators at their word and arent we all? it was the most telling and damning one, too. Nervous is not a character istic, or to borrow a phrase from Muschamp, a critical factor, you look for in a quarterback. In fact, a simple right-click for its synonyms brings up words like panicky, worried, tense and uneasy not words you want associated with your teams signal-caller. While Brantley cant be blamed for being nervous when he was handed the keys to an offense previously driven by one of the best college football players ever, the most troubling part of his answer is that he said youre always nervous. As in, its just part of who you are. His nerves showed last season, and as a result, the Gators sputtered to an 8-5 record and had the 10th-worst offense in the Southeastern Conference. but if hes still panicky it could prove troublesome (again) for the Gators offense, because it will be only as good as SEE NOTE, P A GE 23 SEE K OEHNE, P A GE 23 Tom Greentwitter: @tomas_verde SEE GREEN, P A GE 23 UF Fo otball THE TOM GREEN SHOW

This season, its been more of the same with Florida shutting out Miami and FIU last weekend to kick off its 2011 campaign. After allowing 15 shots eight on goal in the opener against the Hurricanes, the Gators limited the Golden Panthers to just six total shots, only three of which were on frame. shutouts, its awesome, said junior defender Kat Williamson, whose Player of the Week honors. defense, despite the shutouts, still ment. ball, and we need to be a little bit quicker with that and our counter attacks as well, Williamson said.

We were probably fortunate not to get scored upon.

injury. Muschamp said he is questionable for Floridas home opener against Florida Atlantic on Sept. 3. Hines injury is especially costly considering he has also been working at tight end, where Florida is already thin behind starter Jordan Aug. 6, freshman A.C. Leonard suffered a torn meniscus, which is expected to keep him out until mid-September. Cornerback Jeremy Brown (sprained right knee) sat out practice again Wednesday. Brown has been out for two weeks, though Muschamp reiterated that he expects the junior to be back in the lineup by the season opener. Easley impressing: Defensive tackle Dominique Easley was one of the few players Muschamp praised after practice. Easley has been popular lately among teammates, who have singled him out as the best defensive lineman at camp. Hes just relentless, right guard Jon Halapio said. Since hes been here, Ive never seen him show it. Hes really explosive off the ball. I dont know if he knows the snap count. Hes just really quick off the ball. I cant even get out of my stance. By the times I get out of my stance, hes already in my pads. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. talk football. here weve been kinda like a trio, Koehne said. Were with each other 24/7, talking to each other 24/7. Halapio, who started seven games at right guard last season but admitted he wasnt as mentally prepared as he should have been, has been instrumental in preparing Koehne for a starting role. Whether its help learning a work down, Halapio is always there. The relationship the three share has helped create unity at what coach Will Muschamp calls one of the most important There are two units on your football team that have to be tied together, and thats in the offensive line and the second ary, Muschamp said. The communication, being on the same page with the run and the pass game, and having that jell is very important. To that end, having three self-described best friends anchoring the center of the line bodes well for the units cohesiveness. In addition to the added chemistry, Halapio said hes motivated by the lines lackluster performance a season ago. While there is still work to be done Halapio said they are still experiencing the occasional brain fart the addition of Koehne to the mix has improved the lines expectations. But for Koehne, hes just happy to have a chance at starting alongside his friends, his roommates, despite being somewhat seasons on campus. Just keep my eyes down the good path, he said. I knew if I kept working hard Id get a shot. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org.

Weve seen how bad Florida can be when it doesnt get good play from its quarterback. While last years team had a lot of issues, quarterback had to be the most glaring considering Brantley threw more interceptions (10) than touchdowns (nine) as the Gators 82nd-ranked offense stalled all season. Brantley said he needed to just forget about last years disastrous season and move forward. But theres something he should remember: the Gators new offense will only go as far as their quarterback can carry them. You can take me for my word on that one.

GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer When Lerentee McCray switched to defensive end in fall 2009, his days roaming the middle of the defense appeared to be behind him. But now, after two years of limited action on the line, the junior is in position to start at strong-side linebacker. On Wednesday McCray said repetitions in practice alongside sophomore Jelani Jenkins and junior Jon Bostic, with sophomore Darrin Kitchens and freshman Gideon Ajagbe backing him up. Ive always been ready to take on that starting role, McCray said. I really feel comfortable pass-rushing, but adapting to the linebacker position has been coming along really good for me. Said coach Will Muschamp: At this point hes played the best at the SAM. I would say hes been the most consistent guy. McCray came to UF as a fourstar recruit and the No. 10 outside linebacker in the nation, according to Rivals.com. As a senior at Ocala Dunnellon High, he recorded 118 tackles and nine sacks from a standing position. When he arrived on campus, McCray impressed coaches with his ability to rush off the edge in sets featuring three down linemen. That led to the switch to defensive end, where McCray recorded six tackles in limited action last year behind seniors Justin Trattou and Duke Lemmens. But Muschamp and his staff want to use McCray differently. They have decided to stand him up in their hybrid defense that uses a mix of 3-4 and 4-3 principles. Muschamp said McCray has performed well in the teams sub packages, and that his pass-rush abilities give the defense a little more juice off the edge. This defensive scheme has helped me out a lot, McCray said. Just moving back and forth, showcasing my talent and some of the stuff I can do when I get on the grass. McCray added that his role changes depending on the situation and the offensive play call. He estimates that if the opposing offense is passing, hell be dropping back into coverage 70 percent to 80 percent of the time. Muschamps defense is based heavily on cunning and subterfuge, so McCray will also occasionally play the Buck linebacker position, which puts a greater emphasis on the pass rush. McCray said hes comfortable with the defense and the many different schemes and blitz packages that comprise it. Given volved, McCray thinks the Gators have a chance to catch opponents off guard this season. Some teams out there [are] underestimating us, a lot of people doubting us, he said.

Final Albertsons grocery store in Gainesville to be closed PATIENTS RECEIVE EKG TESTS AND ARE SEEN BY A PHYSICIAN. ERIN JESTER Alligator Writer Researchers have found a new, more effective way of testing patients who come to the emergency room with chest pain. The new method will be used in the Chest Pain Emergency Room that opened at Shands on Wednesday. Usually, when a patient arrives at the ER with chest pain, he or she is screened for immediate health risks, such as a heart attack, said Dr. Preeti Jois, a clinical assistant professor of ER medicine and medical director of the Chest Pain ER. If the patient is determined to have low to moderate risk of a heart attack, a doctor prescribes an outpatient stress test, and it is the patients responsibility to return to the hospital for more tests. Before, the problem was that only about one in three patients who were prescribed a stress test were returning, said Dr. David Winchester, an assistant professor of cardiovascular medicine and director of cardiovascular services for the Chest Pain ER. Now, if a patient comes to the Shands ER complaining of chest pain, he or she will receive an EKG test within 10 minutes and will then be evaluated by a physician. If the patient does not have a high risk of heart attack, he or she will be moved to the Chest Pain ER.

Those resources included a UF map, a UF-related event calendar, news and a directory of professors. Since then, more than 14,000 people have downloaded the free app, called UFmobile, Dubno said. Last Thursday, Dubno released an updated version of UFmobile, introducing a class schedule importer, a Facebookwall-like feature and augmented reality, which allows users to aim their devices cameras at buildings to identify them. About 5,000 users updated the original app, and about 1,200 new users downloaded the new version, he said. Fifth-year mechanical engineering major Victor McCor mack downloaded the original and new versions, but he said Its everything I need for being a UF student in one app, McCormack said. UFmobile can be downloaded on the iPhone, iPad and iTouch.

ERIN JESTERAlligator WriterWant to run a 5K and get a perfect tan at the same time? Florida will be held at Sunsport Gardens Naturist Resort in Loxahatchee on Saturday. The event will be hosted by Aqua Sun, an event company started earlier this year by Santa Fe College student Daniel Phillips, 25. He said he expects 65 to 80 runners. There will be a pre-race registration party at Run and Roll in West Palm Beach on Thursday evening. The party and the race are both open to the public. The registration fees are $20 for students, $25 for the public before Thursdays registration party, and $30 the day of the race. Participants can register online at aquasunevents.com. Aqua Sun will donate a portion of the proceeds from the 5K to Vita Nuda and Florida Young Naturists, two Florida naturist groups. Phillips, a naturist, said he started Aqua Sun because he wanted to organize some runs and volleyball games, and its easier to get attention for those events with a company name. We want to let people know that there are naturists out there who arent old and crippled, he said. Were young and we do fun activities. Not only can you not knock it till you try it, but its an experience that will pretty much change your perception of a lot of things, Phillips said. Itll make you never want to wear a swimsuit ever again. Marion Paige, a UF philosophy and religion junior, is a member of Florida Young Naturists Gators club with Phillips on campus. However, the club cant get going without a faculty adviser. Paige said she has participated in numerous Florida Young Naturists and Vita Nuda events. Its more about not having to hide anything about yourself, Paige said. You see everybody for who they are. Theyre all equally vulnerable and equally open. Runners to get naked for 5K Its everything I need for being a UF student in one app. Victor McCormackmechanical engineering majorTECHNOLOGY

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 5Brett Le Blanc/Alligator StaffThe defaced sculpture Lets Just Skip the Meeting stands at the intersection of Main Street and Northwest Second Avenue on Wednesday morning. Gainesville Police are still looking for the person who sloshed the sculpture with yellow paint earlier this week. ADMISSION IS FREE. ESTEE BECKAlligator WriterMusicians, storytellers and belly dancers will take Florida Museum of Natural History visitors on a journey through sounds and music from around the world Friday. Celebration of Sound begins at 6 p.m. at the museum, located on campus at Hull Road and Southwest 34th Street. All community members are welcome, and event admission is free. The event complements one of the museums exhibits called Wild Music: Sounds and Songs of Life, which opened in May and runs until Jan. 2. Tickets ranging from $5.50 to $8 to the Wild Music exhibit will be available at the event. The whole museum will be open, and those who purchase exhibit tickets receive complimentary entry to the open that night. The exhibit guides visitors to consciously experience sounds heard in natural and human environments, like rainforests or cities, and then educates culture around the world. It illustrates that sound and music are all around us, said Leeann Bright, marketing and public relations coordinator at the museum. Jazz trio Deezy Pete will perform at Celebration of Sound, along with Native American storyteller Sarah Eiland and the Ethnic Dance Expressions Per formance Ensemble. Event guests will have the opportunity to join the dance ensemble in a belly-dancing tutorial and will also get to make their own maracas, Bright said. Tiffany Ireland, the events coordinator and the museums education assistant, said its exciting to have such a variety of dance and music perfor mances in one event. ebration of Sound and the Wild Music exhibit, Ireland said, is that it offers an experience for all ages. Its one of the few exhibits where truly any age will have fun, Ireland said. You will learn something, but you might not realize it.Museum celebrates world music BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Contributing WriterMoney earned from selling an unwanted textbook can But textbook-swapping websites allow students to exchange textbooks from past classes for ones they actually need. Buying textbooks sucks, said Jonathan Simkin, founder of www.swoopthat.com. You either go to the bookstore and you pay more, or you look for hours online. Simkins website shows a textbooks sale price and that books price on Amazon and chegg.com. Students can also see what other students in the area have spent on the same book. Because we integrate directly with course schedules, we know what you need, he said. Simkin said it typically takes 10 minutes to buy all the books needed for a semester. Another textbook-swapping website, www.bookmooch. com, could appeal to students who prefer browsing from an international pool of textbooks. can be viewed in seven different languages. It can really save you money when you are trying to make a book collection, said Teresa Malango, who works in media relations for the website. Nevertheless, some students still seek the meat-and-potatoes version of buying books: going to the bookstore. Environmental science senior Stephanie Kurtz said she has never bought a textbook online. I know its cheaper [buying textbooks online], Kurtz said. I just like the convenience of being able to go into the bookstore and get everything I need. She said she fears that if she orders a textbook online then drops the class she will be stuck with having to pay for it that is, if she gets the textbook at all. Kurtz said some of her friends have ordered textbooks online and were sent the wrong ones or never even received them at all. when she goes shopping for textbooks. I buy what I can online, she said, but I buy the rest in the bookstore.Textbook-swapping sites offer alternatives to buying new books Some are integrated directly with course schedulesON CAMPUS CLARE LENNONAlligator WriterThe UF RecSports staff is hosting an event to promote student involvement from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at the Southwest Recreation Center. Staff will offer demonstrations of boot ing classes. Intramural sports competitions, club expositions, chair massages and Lake Wauburg activities will also be showcased. Event organizers expect at least 2,000 students to attend the RecSports Extravaganza, according to marketing coordinator Jessica Gates. The same number of students attended last year. The event is good for new students who want to get involved and learn what RecSports has to offer, said Doug Burkhart, graduate assistant for intramural sports. He said Extravaganza will be more of a social event than an athletic competition.

Jonathan Simkinswoopthat.com Founder CAITLIN HARTLEYAlligator Contributing WriterStudents, new and old, should not just be focused on when and where their classes are, but more along the lines of how they will be getting there, said Dekova T. Batey, the Bicycle/Pedestrian Program Coordinator for City of Gainesville Public Works. Batey said the program is like a clearing house for bicycle and walking safety awareness. The program puts on community events to teach bicycle and pedestrian safety and promotes bicycling in the community. On campus, its an isolated situation where youre more prone to ride a bicycle and get around in a very convenient manner. New students need to be aware of walking and bicycle safety because those are main modes of transportation on a campus, Batey said. Batey said drivers and cyclists believe they know safety regulations. He said not all realize all the rules of sharing the road. Mike Heneks, 18, a freshman majoring in accounting at UF, said he knows all there is to know about bicycling safety. You have the same rights as cars. You have to obey speed limits and stop signs, Heneks said. Correct. But he is forgetting another huge factor when it comes to sharing the road. There is a lot of singular focus, Batey said. A lot of the time you have people that are driving automobiles, and they dont really consider other people who are not in that same mode. Caitlin McDaniel, a 19-yearold electrical engineering major at UF, said shes experienced with bicycling to her classes. She had a little advice for new freshman cyclists: Be really careful and avoid biking around a lot of people. Ive seen it go very bad for all people involved. Make sure you know where youre supposed to be biking, especially at intersections, she said. She admits, though, that she does not follow all safety guidelines. When Im off campus, I always do, but on campus, Im pretty bad about wearing a helmet, she said. McDaniel is not the only to not wear helmets. Heneks was on the same page, saying that when he rode a bike he rarely wore one, either. Even though several students at UF do not wear helmets while biking, according to Batey, they are not breaking any rules. In Florida, the law is that if to wear a helmet, so its optional for those who are 16 and above, he said. Batey and the Bicycle/Pedestrian Program still recommends helmets, no matter what age. Now we have a lot of distracted driving. People are using cellphones and all types of electronic devices while theyre driving, and that distraction may cause those thinking theyre behaving safely to still be hit.

Marine submerses himself in war cultureMy nephew sleeps in what we yoga doers call the corpse pose. He is on his back, legs straight out and hands folded to the center of his chest. As a kid, he slept in all kinds of weird positions. But during a recent visit with him in Miami, I noticed that he has drastically changed his sleeping habits. We went swimming for about an hour the other day, and I asked him how things are going. He responded with a series of stories that I sort of understood but were full of so many military acronyms I didnt bother to ask for front line in Afghanistan. As a corporal in the U.S. Marines, he is also an ammunition specialist with extensive training operating the M777 howitzer. He has notebooks lying all around his mothers home. a grocery list on or set by the phone for messages. He tells me he uses about four of them a day on the job. He writes ammo info and coordinates and other mystery letters and numbers in them. He has an 8-year-old daughter who was born when he was 18. He is now 26 and trying to do right by her. He recently had her name legally changed to his last name. That way, he can make her his benefactor just in case. In the pool, he was telling me of plans to get housing on his base at Camp Lejeune, N.C. That way, his daughter, Cadence, can spend summers with him. During the rest of the year, she lives with her grandparents in Ohio, Monday through Friday, and then with her mom on weekends. She sees her dad once or twice a year. My nephew tells me there is a tattoo tradition among message upon capture or death. Some bodies have The undesirable doing the unimaginable for the ungrateful, running across their chests. Another favorite is Death Before Dishonor. My nephew was excited to share his latest tattoo with me, which he claims will outshine any of those his fellow Marines have. Its so unique that his tattoo artist had to look up what one looks like on the Internet to sketch its likeliness. There is a string leading from his big toe that attaches to a 4-by-2-inch tag that bears NAME: DJ SCHAEFFER and then has empty lines running from TIME:, DATE EX: and a message ATTACH TO TOE. The DATE EX:________ means date expired, as in the date he might die. It seems a little extreme, but I guess that his how Marines live. He tells me, I have seen some things, Aunt he looks down, breaking eye contact. Its like he cant put what he witnesses into words. He did tell me his buddy just lost a foot and how weird it is to see an empty seat or bed in the barracks that someone was actually sleeping in the day before. Then he proclaims that he would like to serve in Afghanistan at least three more times, because upon the fourth hell be known as a Senior Salt Dog. That doesnt something he strives for to up the competition in the barracks. I hugged my nephew goodbye and noticed he had bulked up in his spare time in the desert with 5-inch-high biceps. wasnt sure if or when I would see him again. Each year he serves he becomes embedded deeper and deeper into the culture and language of war and Marine life. I can only hope he remains safe and anchored, retainthings he has seen.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorMeatless Mondays benefit communitiesIn response to your Tuesday column Meatless Mondays Are Vital for Creating a Healthier Campus, I would like to compliment Jared Misner for his incredible work toward bettering this planet for all the creatures on it. Misners and the Gator Dining Services efforts are paying off, and with Meatless Mondays now at UF and sweeping college campuses across the country, thousands of students are being introduced to a greener way of eating through vegetarian cuisine. A recent study by Aramark, a leading food service provider, concluded that one in four college students seek out vegan options when they sit down to eat. UF is now in the unique position to lead the way for schools nationwide by continuing to expand their Meatless Mondays program and removing meat from campus menus. United Nations scientists have determined that raising chickens, pigs and other animals for slaughter generates about 40 percent more greenhouse gasses than all the cars, SUVs, trucks and planes in the world combined. cover that chickens have their beaks cut off when theyre only days old, that male piglets are castrated, and that cows are branded and de-horned all without any painkillers. and dismembered while still conscious as upon cats or dogs, it would result in felony animal cruelty charges. Yet these practices are standard in an industry that refuses to make even the most basic improvements in the way animals are treated. Luckily, not only is going vegetarian the single greatest action that you can take for animals and the environment, its also the best choice that you can make for your health. With UF actively promoting vegetarian and vegan foods, cutting out the cruelty on campus has never been easier! For more information, visit peta2.com to request a free vegetarian/vegan starter kit.

The words in front of my eyes began swimming into each other, forming blobs of lines, not even resembling shadows of their old forms. I shook my head and found myself on Facebook. I noticed that I was missing a nice get-together with friends I hadnt seen in several months. And thats when it hit me. What am I doing? Im staying at home, memorizing French verb conjugations and ignoring my friends. This is all on the second day of school. Does this sound normal to you? Yeah, it didnt sound normal to me either. Im writing this because in high school, I was always that one over-achieving student who annoyed everyone else in the class (to tell you the truth, I annoyed myself as well). UF, I noticed myself falling into the same pattern all school and no play. realized how much I was missing. The few friends I made were talking about shows, events and campus groups theyd gone to. I had nothing to share. I remember a friend of mine last year telling me how she went to an 8:30 a.m. exam so hungover that the room was consistently spinning. She used the story as a cautionary tale; I viewed it with awe and wonder as I had never done anything so remotely daring. I was wasting my college years. With this in mind, I began making a conscious effort to break out of my studious comfort zone. I started attending groups that I liked and started actually going out at night instead of holding myself in. In short, I broke free from my study chains. College is the precursor to real life, and its the only chance to truly explore the facets of your personality and interests. Its the one time in life where youre allowed to follow a whim and not feel the heavy consequences of being spontaneous. Its the one time in life where you can stay up till 5 a.m. because you dont have to wake up until 2 p.m. for a class. and explore your school and enjoy the Gainesville sunshine (or the frequent rain weve experienced). I dont recommend going out and getting drunk every single night, especially when you have an 8:30 a.m. exam the next day. However, realize that life isnt so serious, because arent through nothing? Have an excellent semester. Michela Martinazzi is a sophomore art history major at UF.Students should enjoy life and explore surroundings in collegeGuest columnMichela MartinazziSpeaking Out

The store is one of three Albertsons in Florida scheduled to close, including one in Mount Dora and one in Tampa. Two Texas locations will also close. Three more in the Lone Star State will be sold to H-E-B, a private, Texas-based supermarket. Albertsons closed its other Gainesville location in 2008, selling it to Publix. Albertsons LLC, formed in 2006, bought 660 surviving stores from Albertsons Inc. The remaining of the 2,400 properties were sold to SuperValu and CVS. The number of Albertsons nationwide will be cut to 209 this year. The stores 88 employees were informed of the closing Friday. Wilcox acknowledged this is a sensitive time for unemployment. The most important task right now is to communicate with our associates, Wilcox said. She said options like severance packages and store transfers will be available to eligible employees who want to continue working with the company after the store closes. The nearest Albertsons is in the Orlando area. UF student Josh Weinberg, an 18-year-old biology major, was visiting the 13th Street location for the second time since his move to Gainesville. He doesnt consider himself an Albertsons regular but liked its proximity to campus. He said he wasnt aware of the closing. The news doesnt come as a sur prise, though. He speculated the growth of superstores was to blame for Albertsons decline. Certainly the Walmart right there isnt helpful, said Weinberg, gesturing to the superstore in the neighboring shopping center. Hes not sure where hell do his grocery shopping once the store closes. Maybe Sams Club, he said, which is just up the street at 2801 NW 13th St. Other grocery stores in the area include family-owned Wards Supermarket on 515 NW 23rd Ave., Save-A-Lot on 2605 NW 13th St., and a Publix a little further north at 3720 NW 13th St. Devout customer Donna Scott, 45, of Gainesville, found out about the closing from an Albertsons employee on a recent shopping trip. Scott said she did all her shopping at Albertsons when she lived in the Broward County area. When she moved to Gainesville nearly 12 years ago, the 13th Street Albertsons was her staple. She wont go anywhere else for her shrimp and her steaks, because nobody else, she says, has prices like Albertsons. Scott said it seemed like the store as a shock. I hate that theyre closing, Scott said. Theyre going to be greatly missed. 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 Alex Catalano / AlligatorAlbertsons, located at 2323 NW 13th St., has announced it is closing.

THE TRIP AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE INSPIRED THEM. MORGAN WATKINSAlligator Staff WriterTwelve years after moving to Florida, UF senior Bertrhude Albert crossed country lines once again to return to her home Haiti. It wasnt the same country she remembered as a young child. A month before, on January 12, 2010, Haiti had been rocked by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake. It never struck me what was going on in my country until I went back, Albert said. When I returned, I knew that my future was going to be Haiti. Her father, Isaac, has run an or phanage in Haiti called the H.O.P.E. Center for a decade, but his daughter was also inspired by the trip to offer her own help to the people of her home country. Being face-to-face with this poverty It was engraved in my heart from that point on, Albert said. Albert helped organize a mission trip to Haiti for 19 UF students dur ing spring break. From January 13 to March 1, the group raised more than $23,000 for the trip and other projects, Albert said. Albert and her roommate, masters student Priscilla Zelaya, decidProjects for Haiti Inc. after returning to Florida. When we came back, without a doubt, we had to do something, Zelaya said. Theres so much hope in Haiti. The Christian-based organization supports projects to aid people in Haiti, such as the children at Alberts fathers orphanage. in July. The organization supports an English Association program that provides education materials for 16 Haitians who meet once a week to practice their English-speaking abilities together. The organization also tutors people who cant speak any English once a week to give back to their community. I hope that after this year, their dously and their community grows tremendously, Albert said. She sees Projects for Haiti as a call for young people, Christians and Haitians to help the struggling people of Haiti. Our country needs us, she said of herself and other Haitian people in the U.S. Lets step up and make a difference. Amanda DiLorenzo, who went on the spring break to Haiti in March, said she was amazed by the level of poverty many of the people she met dealt with every day. While she was in Haiti, she met a young girl who came in for medical treatment. The girl had a hernia the size of a toy football on her stomach. When you go to hug her, she would scream (from the pain), DiLorenzo said. They gave her pain medication, but once that ran out, DiLorenzo knew she would be back where she started wanting to be hugged but pained by physical contact. My heart was breaking, she said. DiLorenzo, a UF sophomore and treasurer of Projects for Haiti, was inspired by her experiences to take a course in Creole. Joshua Horton, a 26-year-old UF graduate student in computer engineering, also went on the spring break trip and was amazed by how kind and hard-working the kids at the orphanage were. You realize you dont need to have all the stuff that we do in or der to be happy, he said. When I left the orphanage, I didnt want to leave the kids. I need to go back. Rokeshia Ashley, a 20-year-old UF junior, is a McNair scholar like Albert. She, Albert and another McNair scholar visited Haiti in August. Ashley wanted to visit Haiti after living in the Little Haiti section of Miami. She wanted to see how the cultures of those two places compared to each other. I mean, aside from the bugs and aside from the heat and humidity, I loved it, she said of her trip to Haiti. I felt welcome there. The three students taught English to Haitians during their visit. Fluency in English is a valuable asset in Haiti that can help people get hired for a variety of jobs, Albert said. The kids wanted to learn English, Ashley said. They want an education, and its not readily accessible for them. Albert will graduate this year, but Projects for Haiti will continue with her at the helm. She hopes to eventually earn a Ph.D. in Latin American studies with an emphasis on Haiti. Then she could teach at the college level and continue to visit Haiti a few times each year and run I just want to empower Haitians to go out and make a living, to cope with the hand that theyve been dealt, she said. When she was younger, Albert dreamed of making a high salary. Now she wont give up on the tiny Caribbean country. My conscience wont let me; my heart wont let me; my body wont let me, she said.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATED PRESSWASHINGTON There was a crack in the Washington Monument, and capstones were broken at the National Cathedral. In the District of Columbia suburbs, some people stayed in shelters because of structural concerns at their apartment buildings. A day after the East Coasts strongest earthquake in 67 years, inspectors assessed the damage and found that most problems were minor. But the shaking raised questions about whether this part of the country, with its older architecture and inexperience with seismic activity, is prepared for a truly powerful quake. The 5.8 magnitude quake felt from Georgia north to Canada prompted swift inspections of many structures Wednesday, including bridges and nuclear plants. An accurate damage estimate could take weeks, if not longer. And many people will not be covered by insurance. In a small Virginia city near the epicenter, the entire downtown business district was closed. School was canceled for two weeks to give engineers time to check out cracks in several buildings. At the 555-foot Washington Monument, crews found a 4-inch crack late Tuesday in the monuments top. The damage was discovered during a visual inspection by helicopter and cannot be seen from the ground. The monument, by far the tallest structure in the nations damaged by a natural disaster, including earthquakes in Virginia in 1897 and New York in 1944, said Bill Line, a National Park Service spokesman. Tourists arrived at the monument Wednesday morning that surround its base. Walkways were blocked by metal barriers manned by security guards. Is it really closed? a man asked the clerk at the sites bookstore. Its really closed, said the clerk, Erin Nolan. Advance tickets were available for purchase, but she cautioned against buying them because its not clear when the monument will open. This is pretty much all Im going to be doing today, Nolan said. Tuesdays quake was centered about 40 miles northwest of Richmond, 90 miles south of Washington and 3.7 miles underground. In the nearby town of Mineral, Va., Michael Leman knew his Main Street Plumbing & Electrical Supply business would need at best serious and expensive repairs. At worst, it could be condemned. The faade had become detached from the rest of the building, and daylight was visible through a 4to 6-inch gap that opened between the front wall and ceiling. Ive got peoples jobs to look out for. Leman said he is insured, but some property owners might not be so lucky. The Insurance Information Institute said earthquakes are not covered under standard U.S. homeowners or business insurance policies, although supplemental coverage is usually available. The institute says coverage for other damage that may from burst gas or water pipes, is provided by standard homeowners and business insurance policies in most states. Cars and other vehicles with comprehensive insurance would also be protected. Level Orange, the second-most serious category on its fourlevel scale. Earthquakes in that range lead to estimated losses between $100 million and $1 billion. In Culpeper, Va., about 35 miles from the epicenter, walls had buckled at the old sanctuary at St. Stephens Episcopal Church, which was constructed in 1821 and drew worshippers including Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and J.E.B. Stuart. Heavy stone ornaments atop a pillar at the gate were shaken to the ground. A chimney from the old Culpeper Baptist Church built in 1894 also tumbled down. At the Washington National Cathedral, spokesman Richard Weinberg said the buildings overall structure remains sound and damage was limited to decorative elements. Massive stones atop three of the four spires on the buildings central tower broke off, crashing onto the roof. At least one of the spires is teetering badly, and cracks have Repairs were expected to cost millions of dollars an expense not covered by insurance. Michael Leman

DIANA LOPEZ Avenue Contributing WriterAfter spitting continuous, freestyle rap for a record-shattering nine hours, 18 minutes and 22 seconds in April, it became clear that Chiddy Bang was a force not to be reckoned with. The electro hip-hop duo, formed by Chidera Chiddy Anamege, 19, and Noah Xaphoon Jones Beresin, 19, made waves on the music scene last year with their popular single, Opposite of Adults, and earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest freestyle and continuous rap. Tonight, the duo will take their talents to the Florida Theatre of Gainesville in the Never Growing Up Tour, presented by Party Degree, beginning at 8 p.m. Anamege and Beresin are shaping a new musical frontier where the lines of hip-hop, indie and electronic music are integrating in astounding ways. Opening the door for further experimentation, the two just released a mixtape titled Peanut Butter and Swelly that is available for free online. The youth-orientated feel of the duo stems from the Philly-based pairs experiences and personalities, said Anamege, who comes from a Nigerian family. Growing up in Newark, N.J., Anamege said the city was his heart. Thats where I learned it all, he said. You know, my style, where I learned to do my thing and spontaneously rap spur-ofthe-moment-type shit and come up with rhymes. Anamege then went to boarding school in Massachusetts where he was eventually high school in Pennsylvania and soon after attended Drexel University in Philadelphia, where the fateful meeting between the duo that morphed Chiddy Bang would take place. Chiddy Bang has remained faithful to the college scene, coming to Gainesville fresh off a concert at UCF in Orlando on Wednesday. I especially love doing shows for college kids, Anamege said. You guys know whats up. Tickets for tonights event are on sale online at chiddybanggainesville.eventbrite. com/VIP. Early-bird tickets are $20 and tickets for a Meet and Greet at midnight are on sale for $15. The Avenues Diana Lopez picked up the phone to chat with Chiddy uncensored. What have you been up to so far? Ive been doing a lot of traveling, coming back from the UK. Im in West Virginia right now getting ready to play this show. How did coming to Gainesville come about? I noticed its not listed with the ofyour fans in Gainesville? It wasnt on the schedule, but it made sense to go. Its really cool because weve never done a show in Gainesville or in Or lando, and its something that Im looking forward to doing. Why is your latest mixtape out for free? We started off just giving out free muselves in. Nowadays, instead of putting stuff out and charging people for it, me and Noah, we always thought it was the best thing ever to give out free music to our fans. Give out stuff that we think is a certain quality, stuff thats dope. Cause thats the way we build a fan base. Thats the way we interact. Thats our gift to them. We havent people keep asking us when are we going to drop that record, cause were working on on it. In the meantime, were going to give you guys a free mixtape, something to give to the fans to keep them engaged and keep them busy and give us something to hold Congratulations on breaking the world record for longest freestyle! Tell me about it. It was really MTV that reached out to us to do it. My manager said, MTV is doing this new online music awards show, and they want to have a piece of the show going around you trying to break the world record for longest freestyle. Do you think you can do it? And I was like, well, I mean, Id never freestyled for more than an hour at that time, and I didnt really know how it was going to go, but I knew that I could freestyle, and I said, Well you know, Ill take a crack at it. MTV had all these contingency plans because it was a livestream, and they were like, What happens if he doesnt do it, like gets to four hours and messes up? Like what are we going to do? They didnt know if I could pull it off. As luck would have it, I was able to just coast right through it and make it happen. It was amazing. I started at 11:30 (a.m.) and went on until like 9 p.m. incredible. At the end of it, Ill tell you what, though: I was exhausted. (Chiddy chuckles.) Its a little-known fact that I actually hold two of them: longest freestyle and the longest continued. So that was amazing. You were talking about how you can just keep going when you rap, but if theres ever a time when its 2 a.m., youre stuck in the studio and things arent working out, what do you do to get going again? It really depends. When youre in the studio, you want to be wide awake, you dont want to be tired, you want to be well -rested. I have a long, long rest before I go in the studio so I can just go on for hours and hours and hours. But really its just us: me, Noah and a couple of our people just in the studio chilling, smoking blunts, just vibing. Two a.m. here, everyones exhausted me in the corner smoking a blunt, just zoning out. Thats sort of like how we do it. Whats your favorite thing about tour ing so far? I think my favorite thing about touring is just being in a different place every day. It blows my mind that yesterday I was in the UK. I was playing a music festival with Eminem and Rihanna and all these crazy people, and it was like one of the dopest festivals Ive been part of. It was called V Fest. You know, I had a great time doing that, and today Im in West Virginia playing a show with Big Sean, Mac Miller and Courtesy to the Alligator / EMI RecordsChiddy Bang gained a mainstream following in 2010 with the single Opposite of Adults, which is set to a sample of MGMTs Kids.Chiddy Bang brings the Never Growing Up Tour to Gainesville SeeEE CHIDDY, Pa A GeE 13The show kicks off tonight at 8 p.m. at the Florida Theatre I especially love doing shows for college kids.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 11In 1974, Rolling Stone magazines Jon Landau reviewed an up-andcoming musicians gig for Bostons the Real Paper. The emerging songster was Bruce Springsteen of who Landau penned, I saw rock 'n' rolls future, and its name is Bruce Springsteen. Landaus quote packs weight, and more than 35 years later, its time to dust it off. Brian Fallon is best known as the front man of modern rock n roll pioneers, The Gaslight Anthem. His latest project, an endeavor with friend and guitarist Ian Perkins, goes by the name of The Horrible Crowes. Dubbed by Fallon as his nighttime music project, The Hor rible Crowes debut full-length, Elsie, is a stark contrast to Gaslights revved-up style. Creating a darker, moodier setting and making even better use of his phenomenal vocal abilities, Fallon has crafted what is undoubtedly the most fantastic record of 2011 thus far. His soul is unparalleled in todays watered-down inlike the emotional, crescendo-ing Go Tell Everybody and the wild Mary Ann. Elsie is a slow number that precedes the most Gaslight-esque song hold the Hurricane. The albums standout comes in Black Betty & the Moon, as Fallons lyr icism and storytelling reach new heights, complementing the rock-solid musicianship from he and Perkins. Elsie will not go down as Brian Fallons best album. It'll be topped by future Gaslight Anthem releases. But what Elsie shows us, above anything else, is that Brian Fallon is one of the best songwriters on the planet. Unmatched poetry and subtle yet awe-inspiring musicianship characterize every corner of Elsie, giving the record a personality and swagger that we haven't seen from a release this year. While it might be a weighty column of the semester, Im just going to say it. Im going all in with Brian Fallon. He has my vote for life. I will listen to whatever music he writes. Fallon is the best chance that rock n roll has to remain relevant on a notable scale. I have heard rock 'n' rolls future. Its name is Brian Fallon. ff the Record Thomas NassiffColumnistTwitter: @ThomasNassi ff Band: The Horrible Crowes Album: Elsie Release Date: Sept. 6 Label: Side One Dummy Records Sounds Like: Nighttime music borrowing from Bruce Springsteens Darkness On the Edge of Town and earlier rock n roll and soul staples. Choice Cuts: Behold the Hurricane, Black Betty & the Moon AMY STUARTAvenue Contributing WriterThe steamy, summer heat is in full force as were rounding out the hottest month of the year, and it's important to know how to stay safe when sweating it out under the sun. While working out can be relaxing, the heat Gainesville packs can be quite dangerous. but if you enjoy an outside run, beware. Hydration should be your No. 1 goal. RichFoods and the 2009 Mr. Gainesville Bodybuilding Champion, suggests drinking a gallon of water a day if you want to work out in the sun. Coconut water is also an option because it replenishes your electrolytes. Keeping your body stocked up on amino acids, proteins and even some multivitamins is ideal. You'll also need to gauge how long you'll be outdoors. According to Alexander, no one should be in the sun for more than an hour. The dangers of getting heat stroke are higher around noon, so exercising in the morning or late afternoon is ideal. Some choose to work out at that time because they like their body heat to rise, Alexander said, But its safer to stick with the cool mornings. Holly Beard, a member of UFs crew and drill team, said she is more aware of the risk factors involved with working out in high temperatures because often people dont know they are experiencing heat exhaustion. If your body is low stress, which then leads to heat exhaustion. After this, you could experience heat stroke. down. If you are out in the sun, however, and you feel as if you are about to experience heat stroke, dont sit down. Keep walking until you under a shady tree. Coping with exercising outdoors in the Gainesville heat

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 13 3 Doors Down. You cover so much distance, and you get to touch the people. Its always a fun time. You bring a lot of youthful energy to the rap scene, especially with the Never Growing Up tour that youre on. Where did that theme come from? I think it just comes from our personality. We went to college our freshman year; it was full of a bunch of kids that a lot of the time were stressed out and studying. It was full of kids who had their heads crammed in their textbooks, studying for midterms how to just have fun. Us, we kind of just had a good time. ever did, in, like, college basements. It would just be us and whoever wanted to come down to a frat house or a basement and wig out. We would just have fun; there was always a youthful energy to it. Just think about the kids who are really uptight and strictly focused on the textbook stuff. They dont grasp the essence of college, like meeting people and experiencing new things. When I met Noah, I was like, this is a new experience. He listens to a different type of music. We were in different crews and I embraced that new experience. How did your parents take it when you told them that you were dropping out and going on tour? They initially opposed it because they were like, What are you doing? And theyre all about academics, and theyre Nigerian and they want you to be like a doctor or a lawyer and all that stuff. But once they saw that I wasnt just fing my life away, and once they saw that there were some positive returns with what was happening, they were progressing forward. They were like, All right, I can deal with it. Its not so bad. Now theyre like the proudest parents ever. In the end, it worked out. If you were an item in a kitchen, what would that item be? Id be like a butter knife. Like Im not going to cut you, like, hard. If you piss me off, Im not going to come at you. Im a little smooth with it, but at the same time, dont fk with me. (Chiddy chuckles.) You cant really do any damage with a butter knife, but just having the duality of cutting something, but not hurting you. Is there a certain food that you absolutely cannot live without? I like to eat like steak, you know what Im saying? Im a big steak fan. A good dinner with a good steak medium rare is just like heaven. With mashed potatoes on the side and gravy. In another interview, you said that if a guest ever visited your home, you would give them a drink that wasnt very good. Could you elaborate on that? Oh shit, yeah yeah yeah its not a drink; youre probably talking about the Kola nut. Yeah, its like really, really bitter. Its an African tradition, so whenever someone comes to the house, you offer (him or her) a Kola, which is this nut which is really ... its not ... you know, an acquired taste. (Chiddy laughs.) Its not like, Hey, let me try this out and its going to be the best thing ever. But thats not the point its about the culture, partaking in it and experiencing it. Do you feel like some of your Nigerian roots are in your music? Xaphoon, he sampled some on some of our ear lier material. But I dont know, I think the Nigerian roots, youll get that across if you meet me. I dont think I present that in my music because I grew up here, in America. This is what I really know, but at the same time, if you meet me, youll be surprised with how aware I am of the culture and how aware I am of what goes on over there. Im actually going over there on Oct. 15. I always go; I go every year. My parents came back from Nigeria, like, yesterday. They travel there often, and I always go to get in touch with my family.The duo is paving new paths in modern music, blending genres CHIDDY, from page 10CCourtesy to the Alligator / EMII RecordsAnamege and Beresins latest single, Mind Your Manners, has more than 500,000 hits on YouTube.

Maybe. Juggling is an act that KAY BEA in the ANDY MAROON ALLIGATOR It doesnt take a keen eye to realize the students around here emulate Gainesvilles hot, hot heat. There are literally thousands of brilliant, fascinating, gorgeous, arousing lovelies in this tiny town. And most of us arent registered as in a relationship on Facebook.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15A brand-spankin new school year has debuted on college campuses across the country, bringing with it high expectations, football season debauchery and a fresh start for all the new and returning students. Each year students evolve, adapting to their new class status. Some suddenly stop caring about school, some reach the high of being able to legally booze, but all will most likely make some epically bad decisions (even you, fresh meat). Every class is different in its own special way, and your friendly fellas here at the Avenue have tried to decode the pecking order, uncover ing the evolution of a young buck freshman to a geezer senior.FreshmanDressed to impress, the freshmen will arrive to class early and sit in the front row of Exceptional People after being inspired to do so by the peppy Preview staff. They found their way to Carleton via their campus maps and are sporting the ever-so-stylish or ange and blue lanyards around their necks. At night, they can be spotted leaving the bars when you arrive or vomiting after the three drinks they pregamed with in a Broward triple.SophomoreSophomores are so incredibly happy theyre not freshmen anymore that wisdom with any freshman who will listen, and if ever they are heart failure. At any given moment they can tell you how many days theyve got until their 21st birthday, and they can be seen getting their fake IDs taken away at Gator City.JuniorThese new upperclassmen have come to the horrible realization that college is going to be over in less than two years, and theyre going to have to enter the real world. They can be seen toting MCAT and LSAT prep books everywhere they go. And since theyve just turned 21, theyre super eager to show every employee at the bar their IDs, even if no one asks for it (um, you ordered a water).SeniorThey look perpetually hungover and exhausted. They are so over school but so ready to drink. After class (if they even go to class), theyll walk straight over to Balls and spend the day there. Day-drinking anyone? Shelby WebbColumnist

TYLER JETTAlligator Staff Writer Coach Will Muschamp ended practice about 30 minutes early Wednesday night, but it was far from a reward. Frustrated with his players inability to remember assignments, Muschamp said the coaching staff would be evaluatstarters could be losing their jobs. There aint no doubt, Muschamp well look at the tape. Were gonna get the guys who compete and want to play hard. Florida did situational work Wednesday, meaning players were told to prethird downs or plays inside the red zone. Muschamp said most of the players did pretty well remembering their assignments, but clearly the problems of a few made the biggest impact on practice. Its just a lack of focus on what youre supposed to do and how youre supposed to do it, he said. Were in (a two-minute drill); we have guys walking around. We have no sense of urgency about what we do and how we do it and how we approach it. Very frustrating. Muschamp didnt say Wednesdays practice was a step back but added, It dang sure wasnt a step forward. This comes just four days after the Gators broke training camp. Following two weeks of staying together in a hotel and focusing on football all day, Florida players have returned to the typical dayto-day routine of mixing practice with classes. Muschamp doesnt think the new schedule affected practice. If youre a competitor and you want to line up in that stadium and play hard and play fast and play physical, you do it regardless of the situation, regardless of the opponent, he said. It doesnt matter; you just line up and play.

UF FOOTBALLFrustrated Muschamp cuts practice short MATT WATTSAlligator Staff Writer Offensive lineman Kyle Koehne may not be a household name for Florida fans. But the sophomore is a well-known commodity among his brothers in the trenches. Koehne, who was moved from tackle to left guard recently, has emerged as the likely starter when Florida opens the season next Saturday against FAU. Since the move, teammates and coaches have raved about Koehnes work in practice, and while that may come as a surprise to some, its nowhere near a shock to Koehnes roommates: center Jonotthan Harrison and right guard Jon Halapio. Hes had a few plays where hes killing guys, Halapio said. He just really knows what you can clearly see that on Although Koehne rose from relative obscurity to the top of the depth chart in a matter of weeks, he said the adjustment has not been a big issue for him. After rotating with the reserves on the right side at guard and tackle last season, Koehne said hes comfortable at any spot along the line, adding valuable depth at every position should someone go down with an injury. Also helping his learning curve is the relationship Koehne shares with Halapio and Harrison. After lining up next to each other snap after same house, the same couch, and continue to Koehne in mix to start after switch to guardWith practices closed off to the media and the public and limited bits of actual information coming from anyone associated with the Gators reporters, fans and outside observers alike have had to take coach Will Muschamp and his players at their word. So I have, and that includes redshirt senior quarterback John Brantley during fall camp. as the Gators starting quarterback, Brantley was frank. Youre always nervous in games, thats just the way you are, he said. It was arguably the most honest answer to a question during the opening weeks of practice. If youre taking the Gators at their word and arent we all? it was the most telling and damning one, too. Nervous is not a character istic, or to borrow a phrase from Muschamp, a critical factor, you look for in a quarterback. In fact, a simple right-click for its synonyms brings up words like panicky, worried, tense and uneasy not words you want associated with your teams signal-caller. While Brantley cant be blamed for being nervous when he was handed the keys to an offense previously driven by one of the best college football players ever, the most troubling part of his answer is that he said youre always nervous. As in, its just part of who you are. His nerves showed last season, and as a result, the Gators sputtered to an 8-5 record and had the 10th-worst offense in the Southeastern Conference. but if hes still panicky it could prove troublesome (again) for the Gators offense, because it will be only as good as SEE NOTEE, Pa A GE 23 SEE Ko OEHnNE, Pa A GE 23 Tom GGreentwitter: @tomas_verde SEE GGREEEEN, Pa A GE 23 UF Fo otball THEHE TOM GGREEEEN SHSHOW

JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer The Gators defense was stingy from the start last year, allowing games. This season, its been more of the same with Florida shutting out Miami and FIU last weekend to kick off its 2011 campaign.

injury. Muschamp said he is questionable for Floridas home opener against Florida Atlantic on Sept. 3. Hines injury is especially costly considering he has also been working at tight end, where Florida is already thin behind starter Jordan Aug. 6, freshman A.C. Leonard suffered a torn meniscus, which is expected to keep him out until mid-September. Cornerback Jeremy Brown (sprained right knee) sat out practice again Wednesday. Brown has been out for two weeks, though Muschamp reiterated that he expects the junior to be back in the lineup by the season opener. Easley impressing: Defensive tackle Dominique Easley was one of the few players Muschamp praised after practice. Easley has been popular lately among teammates, who have singled him out as the best defensive lineman at camp. Hes just relentless, right guard Jon Halapio said. Since hes been here, Ive never seen him show it. Hes really explosive off the ball. I dont know if he knows the snap count. Hes just really quick off the ball. I cant even get out of my stance. By the times I get out of my stance, hes already in my pads. Contact Tyler Jett at tjett@alligator.org. talk football. here weve been kinda like a trio, Koehne said. Were with each other 24/7, talking to each other 24/7. Halapio, who started seven games at right guard last season but admitted he wasnt as mentally prepared as he should have been, has been instrumental in preparing Koehne for a starting role. Whether its help learning a work down, Halapio is always there. The relationship the three share has helped create unity at what coach Will Muschamp calls one of the most important There are two units on your football team that have to be tied together, and thats in the offensive line and the secondary, Muschamp said. The communication, being on the same page with the run and the pass game, and having that jell is very important. To that end, having three self-described best friends anchoring the center of the line bodes well for the units cohesiveness. In addition to the added chemistry, Halapio said hes motivated by the lines lackluster performance a season ago. While there is still work to be done Halapio said they are still experiencing the occasional brain fart the addition of Koehne to the mix has improved the lines expectations. But for Koehne, hes just happy to have a chance at starting alongside his friends, his roommates, despite being somewhat seasons on campus. Just keep my eyes down the good path, he said. I knew if I kept working hard Id get a shot. Contact Matt Watts at mwatts@alligator.org.

I feel more right calls, making the right protections. Thats a good sign for Florida, because it shows Brantley is progressing to the point where hes not anxBut its also cause for concern, because it means hes not there yet. Weve seen how bad Florida can be when it doesnt get good play from its quarterback. While last years team had a lot of issues, quarterback had to be the most glaring considering Brantley threw more interceptions (10) than touchdowns (nine) as the Gators 82nd-ranked offense stalled all season. Brantley said he needed to just forget about last years disastrous season and move forward. But theres something he should remember: the Gators new offense will only go as far as their quarterback can carry them. You can take me for my word on that one.

GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer When Lerentee McCray switched to defensive end in fall 2009, his days roaming the middle of the defense appeared to be behind him. But now, after two years of limited action on the line, the junior is in position to start at strong-side linebacker. On Wednesday McCray said repetitions in practice alongside sophomore Jelani Jenkins and junior Jon Bostic, with sophomore Darrin Kitchens and freshman Gideon Ajagbe backing him up. Ive always been ready to take on that starting role, McCray said. I really feel comfortable pass-rushing, but adapting to the linebacker position has been coming along really good for me. Said coach Will Muschamp: At this point hes played the best at the SAM. I would say hes been the most consistent guy. McCray came to UF as a fourstar recruit and the No. 10 outside linebacker in the nation, according to Rivals.com. As a senior at Ocala Dunnellon High, he recorded 118 tackles and nine sacks from a standing position. When he arrived on campus, McCray impressed coaches with his ability to rush off the edge in sets featuring three down linemen. That led to the switch to defensive end, where McCray recorded six tackles in limited action last year behind seniors Justin Trattou and Duke Lemmens. But Muschamp and his staff want to use McCray differently. They have decided to stand him up in their hybrid defense that uses a mix of 3-4 and 4-3 principles. Muschamp said McCray has performed well in the teams sub packages, and that his pass-rush abilities give the defense a little more juice off the edge. This defensive scheme has helped me out a lot, McCray said. Just moving back and forth, showcasing my talent and some of the stuff I can do when I get on the grass. McCray added that his role changes depending on the situation and the offensive play call. He estimates that if the opposing offense is passing, hell be dropping back into coverage 70 percent to 80 percent of the time. Muschamps defense is based heavily on cunning and subterfuge, so McCray will also occasionally play the Buck linebacker position, which puts a greater emphasis on the pass rush. McCray said hes comfortable with the defense and the many different schemes and blitz packages that comprise it. Given volved, McCray thinks the Gators have a chance to catch opponents off guard this season. Some teams out there [are] underestimating us, a lot of people doubting us, he said. Were always ready to surprise some people.
